Disability Retirement


The federal government allows employees who are unable to work to retire under a disability retirement. It is in the best interest of both employees and the federal government for employees to remain gainfully employed in their current grade or pay level, as long as they can provide useful and efficient service without endangering themselves, others or government property.
Disability retirement should be the very last option and should be used only when attempts have been made to preserve an individual's employment, and those attempts have failed.

Order our Disability Retirement guide to educate yourself on the rules and regulations concerning disability retirement for federal employees.

Well, I started this whole MESS in April 2011 and what the heck, it's only been one year. I am on 4th, yes 4th escalation, which apparently does NOT mean a darn thing. Who would have guessed you could be made to run around and around and hear a million different answers all from the same department. I did finally get a call from one of their supervisors that made me think that he did give a hoot, but here I sit with all the rest of you, waiting and waiting. I guess if you dont get really upset over this whole nightmare, you might end up a better, or is it bitter??!! than you started out. i just can not wait till its finally over with. And I also hope that my final nos. do NOT need to be redone!!

Oct- approved

Dec-back pay

Jan- assigned specialist

Feb- in review

Feb-back to specialist

March-in escalation this time: which has something to do with hurrying this up because it has been in the system too long, from what I have been told.
